The upcoming Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta will run at 720p and 60fps, according to developer 343 Industries.


Speaking to Eurogamer, 343’s Josh Holmes reiterated that 720p isn’t the final resolution for the game. “For the beta, we’re going to be coming out at 720p and 60fps,” he said.

“That’s not the final resolution for the game. You can imagine as we go through the remainder of the project we’ll be focused on polishing the visual look of the game.”

The final resolution should be 1080p/60fps, with Holmes telling VG247 that the whole game has been built with that resolution in mind.

“We’ve gone and re-architected the engine from the ground up, we’ve built all of the gameplay systems around 60fps,” he said in our hands-on feature.

The Halo 5: Guardians beta will run December 19 to January 18.
